Libyan Prime Minister Ali Zidan met with US President Barack Obama in Washington on Wednesday (March 13th), Libya Herald reported.

President Obama reaffirmed US support to Libya during the process of democratic transition, particularly in enhancing the rule of law, strengthening government institutions and boosting security.
